Chris Potter


The tenor saxophonist’s study of Homer’s Odyssey pays off with The Sirens, a new album on which Potter approaches archetypal themes, including romance and homecoming, with a storyteller’s patience. Expect epic narratives (including Potter mentor Wayne Shorter’s “Penelope”) to unfold when the lyrical powerhouse sets sail with Larry Grenadier (bass), Eric Harland (drums), and Bad Plus pianist Ethan Iverson.
